Jack Taylor: The Magdalen MartyrsDirected byStuart Orme
Third telemovie has a stronger premise than usual about abuse in the Catholic church, but sadly the revelation is weak and very expected from the get go. More fun is it that supporting actress Nora-Jane Noone made her debut in the acclaimed "The Magdalene Sisters" 10 years ago making this a kind-of 10 year celebration movie? Some strong acting make up for it, especially the scary young evil nun bitch, Lucifer.
